Matt Charboneau is a hack

Post by Matt » Tue Sep 19, 2017 6:59 am

Matt Charboneau has to be the biggest homer beat writer employed by the Detroit News, and they let him do the Big Ten power rankings. Let me preface this by saying I don't care that he has MIchigan fourth. The offense needs to make some major strides, but the special teams and defense are championship caliber. It is a bit ridiculous that he has Ohio State ahead of them after they were curb-stomped by Oklahoma, but Michigan will have its chance in the next 2 1/2 months to prove it is the best team in the conference.

What I take offense to is that he has SPARTY at #5, ahead of Maryland, Purdue, and Iowa! This is a team that went 3-9 a year ago and has only beaten two MAC teams. As much as it pains me to say it, I really hope Notre Dame takes it to Sparty this weekend.

Michigan has a very pedestrian offense... a 9-3 team at best.

U-M should be #3. I'd put MSU at seventh maybe.

Charboneau does indeed suck; no argument here.

I'd say 4th... we play the other 3 ranked teams so that'll tell the tale... but we don't look top 10 especially offensively... our drop from 7 to 8 illustrates that other folks are seeing the same kind of trend of underperformance.

Charboneau's rankings look especially absurd now!

MSU got killed last night. Most folks had them ranked between 8th and 10th after last week's contests.

Matt, your wish was granted!

BTW, there need to be better camera angles at the goal line at Spartan Stadium. The replay review of the TD vs. fumble at the goal line in the second quarter had NO conclusive camera angles available!!!

I'd make an argument after this week that Michigan could be #1 in the conference, but we'll get to see in the coming weeks. If Michigan State is any higher than #10 in this week's ranking, Charboneau should be fired.

Step slowly away from the weed... Michigan is 4th in the conference and no higher until they prove otherwise.

The top four is pretty murky at the moment.

They beat Penn State and Wisconsin last year. They arguably beat Ohio State #JTWasShort

That was a more experienced team... this one has a rattly offense, solid defense that lets folks move the ball and a near automatic place kicker...

After Penn State narrowly escaped with a win, Charbo-neau-nothing still has them ranked #1.

The dimwit placed MSU at #7 (!!!) after they got killed at home by the Irish. That's pretty generous placement, I would say.

He is indeed very awful. State has two MAC wins and they were jail-sexed by ND.
